Foxconn CEO says the iPhone 5 will be better than the Galaxy S III, sets goal to defeat Samsung
0. phoneArena 21 Jun 2012, 04:08 posted on
Terry Gou went so far as to say that Sharp is three years ahead of Samsung in its 10th generation screen plant, perhaps focusing on the IGZO technology that the Japanese have developed, and which is making debut in the Resolutionary display of the new iPad. Moreover, he fleetingly mentioned that people should wait for the iPhone 5, as it will put the Galaxy S III to shame...

Actually it's just a slip of tongue, he means iPhone 5 will put Galaxy s2 to shame next year they will take on S3.

Galaxy S2? Bro, iOS 6 is not even better than Android 2.2 Froyo.

it is so stupid, apple had to buy lcd from samsung because LG and Sharp had manufacturing problemy in 10 gen fab, so who can produce more highest quality LCD now.

Actually Apple's suppliers for LCD's are Samsung, but since the GS3 is about to wipe this iPhone hype, iPhone is starting to revenge and partner w/ a new LCD company.

He should be more concerned with making working conditions BETTER for his employees and prevent further suicides

did you know koreans beat their workers until now. they can do that in korea coz its acceptable there. but they are also doing it in factories in other countries. recently, videos surface showing korean supervisor beating up a worker in the philippines. i'm just saying.

Oh yeah and the next Nexus will be better than the iPhone 5! Really? No s**t Mr CEO, obviously a phone coming out after another that's a flagship will be better then it's competitors.
And more than likely because it's an iPhone, it won't be. iOS6 already shows what it will be running on, the only thing that could change is hardware or they'd be fragmenting iOS.So unless they decide to go Open Source, ditch the 10 billion lawyers they stockade up on to sue competitors, and do a trillion other things; The iPhone will never be better than an Android.

HTC sensation came out later than galaxy s2 but people still say s2 better
23. bobfreking55 (Posts: 866; Member since: 15 Jul 2011)
took a while before the 4s came out. they said it would crush the s2 but it went as far as equalling it after the long wait.

I can't help but laugh at this. Samsung has been and always will be BETTER THAN APPLE. Matter of so is HTC for that matter...

Last I checked the Galaxy S2, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note, and upcoming Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 as well as the November Galaxy Nexus all s**ts on Apple.

Hmm... sounds a little bit like Asian racism bolstered with some butt-hurt feelings over Samsung spilling the beans of their price-fixing malfeasance, and probably self-interests given his APPL shares.

na it aint im glad I would not be upgrading this year, I got the galaxy note, but even with the changes they make this year, it wont be nothing big, my eyes are looking toward 2013.......I understand people like having a new phone, I use to do it, but now that we in dual cores, my phone works pretty well, I use to only change every couple months to a year because I felt past phones were sluggish, even though they were the high tech at the moment......

13. frydaexiii (Posts: 1310; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
His cockiness just takes all the validity out of his statement, not like the iPhone 5 will ACTUALLY put the S3 to shame. Apple always boasted that they make hardware alongside software to go with each other, we've seen iOS6, iPhone 5 is going to be just as disappointing to accompany such crappy software.

"I respect the Japanese and especially like their execution and communication styles. Unlike the Koreans, they will not hit you from behind."
I can`t believe he just said that, an I missing something?! Wasn`t China that stabbed Korea in the back in the 50s?

Terry Gou, better take care of your Foxconn employees first before the next iPhone.

It's no secret that phonearena is very pro-android, just as there is Fandroids there are Iphone Fanatics. That believe their device started earth and is the best thing to set foot on it.
I can at least say, I tried it. Hated it and went back to Android.

This article obviously about foxcon vs samsung as electronic manufacture not as an android phone maker, maybe samsung is the biggest android player but samsung is not android. But people always bring android vs ios because that's all you had in your brain. Apple vs samsung in this article is about hardware not os, foxconn is apple's supplier dude, no wonder he praise iphone

I do not understand why the fuss? Even now the GS3 is nothing to brag about. Stupendously lagre screen with lower resolution than 4S, cheap plastic body, average 8MP shooter, oh yeah and again with Android...

Say what? lower resolution than the 4s?
The 4s has: 640x960
The s3 has: 720x1280 - How is that smaller resolution?
Also the camera sensors in both these two phones are said to be almost identical.
And it is a polycarbonate body which is actually expensive to produce and extremely durable.
So yea um maybe do a little market research before you make your next claim about the 4s being better.
With respect to operating system and screen size, it is simply a personal preference.
43. frydaexiii (Posts: 1310; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
Lower resolution? It has a 720P display, the iphone only has a 640P. And by Apple's logic, since the new iPad has a ppi of 264 ppi and it's still considered "retina", the SGS3 which has 306 ppi is also a "retina" screen.
Cheap plastic? It's polycarbonate, that itself already beats cheap thick glass.
When the iPhone gets zero-shutter lag, then you can come talk to me about "average shooter".
and Yes, Android, I don't see how that's a con.

306 is a lowers resolution. Lol get it together

no taco, its not a lower RESOLUTION, its a lower PIXEL DENSITY.
get yourself together.

User agents, screen resolution. And he still has the nerve to claim that iPhone users are more tech savvy, while every time he opens his mouth about anything even remotely tech related he's 100% wrong.
